Of course I wouldn't have taken it seriously if I didn't take the time to think if it makes sense, would I? I'd imagine myself making a lot of typos on reds if I do so on my Realforce because of it's 30g keys.

I still need to update the guide and get some changes rolled in. Sadly, only 1 Tator and 30 jobs to do.

It's just an economies of scale thing, i'm fairly certain they don't cost a lot more to produce.

Originally, the reds were fairly unpopular. Being a light, linear switch, they are prone to more typing errors. This in turn made very few keyboard models offer them.

Then, whenever anyone thought they would like to use reds, the boards were rare and hard to get ahold of, which massively drives up the prices. That made it so only people who really, really wanted MX reds would tend to end up with them. In turn that makes almost all the reviews of reds very positive sounding, since everyone who bought one loves it. Now the reds start sounding attractive to average people who normally wouldn't have had much interest in them.

Filco then sees this as an opportunity to cash in on this, and releases a few limited boards with reds. People are willing to pay more for them, since reds had been so hard to get.

To be fair though, I honestly haven't seen many complaints from any of the new wave of MX red owners. I guess they work fine.
